SF Bars Overview

Magnolia Gastropub & Brewery - Gastropub | Brewery | Pub in SF

Open your golden gates, Bay Area, and let us in to the incredible array of bars in San Francisco. The city is certainly known for its wine given the proximity to the famed Napa Valley, and lovers of the grape will enjoy a thousand lifetimes of wine bars, from swanky spots to budget-friendly dens to down a bottle or three.

If sipping wine doesn’t entice, it’s hardly a chore to fill the void, as SF bars cover the gamut and serve up just about everything one can imagine. The hipster-heavy Mission is known for its great mixology spots and gastropubs, as well as a plethora of gritty dive bars that seemingly haven’t been cleaned since the Great Earthquake.

It’s a meat-market in the upscale Marina on the weekends, with bar-hoppers spilling into the streets, and the same can be said of Polk Street in Russian Hill. Known for its vivid gay history, The Castro welcomes everyone into its bars with the requisite rainbow flags out front, and though the hippy heydays have long since burned off The Haight, it’s still a great place to find cheap beer and unpretentious drinking dens.

San Francisco bars are like its people: diverse, festive, and full of life, so whether visitors want to cry in their beer at a Tenderloin dive, sample the latest mixology craze at a speakeasy blocks away, or let loose in a tropical drink paradise way on the outskirts of town, SF bars have it covered like the fog covers the city.
